Back in 2010 a study found that CBD (cannabidoil) produced from Hemp reduced the symptoms of sufferers of SAD ( Social Anxiety Disorder). This study not only addressed on how the participants felt at the time  they also discovered a medical change.

Another study done in 2011 found that CBD produced from Hemp also assisted those with SAD that resulted in the fear of Public Speaking and it enabled these suffers to be able eliminate this fear and speak in public.

From these two studies research spread its wings and branched out to see what other help Hemp and the CBD produced from it could assist people more then those with Anxiety.

I guess you are saying arent Hemp and Marijuana the same plant?

While hemp is the same species of plant as Marijuana its not the same plant, In fact they are almost exact opposites when it comes to the chemical make up. In other word when it comes to the amount of THC and CBD found in the plants

Marijuana has considerably high amounts of THC in it and this is why it’s the favourite plant of choice to many recreational drug uses who use it for the psychotropic effects the THC produces. Marijuana has very minisqual amounts of CBD present in the plant. On the other end of the scale you have Hemp which has the high amounts of CBD and the minisqual amounts of THC , in fact if you were to smoke the Hemp leaves you would not get stoned at all.

Here at superfoodsNZ we are looking forward to the day we can announce to our customers that Not only can our Hemp products be consumed by their animals but they are now legally allowed to consume  it themselves. The change is coming in New Zealand and we are hoping the legislation will be finalized by the end of this year and that way we can start assisting our customers with assistance with the Anxiety disorders via Hemp products in the near future.
